The long awaited news of the wedding engagement of HRH Prince William to Kate Middleton has finally arrived and what cheery news it is too.
During these challenging economic times it is comforting to hear positive news of a Prince who has chosen to marry the girl that he so loves, regardless of her middle class back ground.
You see the great thing about Prince William is that you feel he is one of us, a bloke at the sports club, down the pub, in the work place. You sense that if you were to meet him he would be charming, welcoming, an open guy and that is why his relationship and engagemment to Kate has captured the public interest and imagination.
Let’s hope that the additional tabloid pressures do not force an iron curtain around him and Kate.
Needless to say the China and Glass industry are delighted to hear the news. Already high quality commemorative gifts have been commissioned, designs have been prepared many months in advance.
The usual Royal Wedding and gift ware manufacturers are cranking up production and gift product for the Royal Engagement from Aynsley China is already on our website to pre order for delivery in January.
The designs for the Royal Wedding commemoratives and souvenirs will be finalised once a date and location are set, Westminster Abbey and late Summer are the betting favourites.
Havens have seen a number of Royal Events, the Coronation, the marriage of Prince Charles to Lady Diana, the Queen’s Silver and Golden Jubilees, so we know how popular our Royal Family are when it comes to these big celebrations. The public want to savour the moment and a token of that moment is a Royal souvenir it will be a welcome shot in the arm for the China and Glass industry.
So watch this space for quality Royal Wedding commemorative Souvenirs and gifts from Aynsley China, Royal Crown Derby, Royal Doulton, Wedgwood, Spode, William Edwards and the Royal Collection.
